About the Nominations

Instead of consulting publishing experts or a judging panel, we look to readers to find the best books of the year. We analyze statistics from the 170 million books added, rated, and reviewed on the site in 2012 and nominate based on a book's number of ratings and average rating. So a nomination is truly an honor because it comes straight from the readers!

By a Thread by Jennifer Estep Sacrificial Magic by Stacia Kane Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews Fair Game by Patricia Briggs Third Grave Dead Ahead by Darynda Jones

It's going to be hard to pick just one!!
I love all these authors. I've read all these books but By a Thread.
I'm leaning toward Sacrificial Magic.


Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost (PNR)
Lover Reborn by JR Ward (PNR) REVIEW

Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

I'll most likely vote for LR by Ward because I've read it.
I've not read Vlad yet but he's on my shelf.

  1. Is Once Burned really considered a romance? I would put it under paranormal fantasy.
